The UN calls for the media to take a more ‘constructive’ approach to news with its Constructive Voices program

In a meeting in London on Wednesday, director general Michael Møller will talk to journalists about United Nations’ new Constructive Voices program and call for the media to take a more “constructive” and “solutions-focused” approach to news. Constructive Voices is an online resource designed to help journalists find case studies with practical solutions to problems. Ahead of the event, Møller said: “In a world of 7 billion people … we need responsible media that educate, engage and empower people and serve as a counterpoint to power. We need them to offer constructive alternatives in the current stream of news, and we need to see solutions that inspire us to action.”
